red mail Shamrock Tavern
Hello I am looking for any information on the "Shamrock Tavern" which was situated at 14 Tea Street Prescot Lancs in 1901. Mary Ellen Comer was listed as a Beer House keeper at that address in the 1901 Census. I have found that she was born Mary Ellen Donnelly in Ireland and she married Thomas Comer in 1898 at Prescot. They had two children Margaret born 1899 and William born 1900. Then Thomas Comer died in 1900. In 1902 Mary Ellen Comer married James Higgins (who was a boarder at the Shamrock Tavern in 1901) and they became my grandparents but I never knew them as they both died before I was born and were living in Liverpool 5 when they died. In the 1891 Census there is a family of Comer's living at 15 Tea Street Prescot who I think are Thomas's family. Does anyone have any information on the Shamrock Tavern and the Comer family?
